Chad Johnson stopped 36 of 38 shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

Tonight was Johnson's first start in five games, as he's taken a bit of a back seat to Brian Elliott. Johnson allowed both goals in the first period, but he was able to shut the door the rest of the way. He now has a 18-13-1 record with a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage.

Troy Brouwer scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

Brouwer helped set up Sam Bennett's game-tying goal (1-1) at the 8:57 mark of the first period. He then added the final goal of the game at the 6:19 mark of the second frame. The offensive output put an end to Brouwer's personal six-game pointless streak. He's up to 10 goals and 11 assists in 54 games this season.

Sean Monahan netted his 100th career goal on Thursday.

At the age of 22 and 134 days, Monahan became the youngest 100-goal player in the Flames' franchise history, taking the record away from Joe Nieuwendyk. "I don’t know exactly what the record is," Monahan said. "But it’s pretty cool. It’s special to get goals like that, especially in big wins like this." Monahan has 20 goals and 39 points in 61 contests in 2016-17.

Brian Elliott turned aside 23 of 25 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Elliott gave up a goal early in the first period, but the Lightning didn't score again until Nikita Kucherov added a power play marker with just over a minute left in the game. Elliott is 3-0-1 in his last four games and he's given up two goals or less in three of those outings. He has a 14-13-3 record with a 2.81 goals-against-average and a .896 save percentage. His fantasy stock is slowly starting climb.
Feb 23 - 11:19 PM

Dougie Hamilton picked up a goal and two assists in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Hamilton registered assists on second-period goals by Mikael Backlund and Sean Monahan before scoring one of his own (on the power play) to extend Calgary's lead to 3-1 in the third frame. Hamilton finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two penalty minutes and five shots on goal in 19:57 of ice time. The Flames defenseman has quietly put together a solid fantasy year, as he's up to 10 goals and 39 points in 60 games.

Dennis Wideman, Jyrki Jokipakka and Freddie Hamilton will each be scratched against Tampa Bay on Thursday.

Through 52 games this season Wideman has posted three goals and 16 points along with 30 PIMs, 59 hits and 66 blocks. The youngster Jokipakka meanwhile has posted six points with 25 hits and 30 blocks in 38 games.

Dennis Wideman is open to waiving his no-movement clause if the Flames want to trade him.

"If that’s something that (the Flames) want to do, then they can call and I definitely would be open to it," Wideman said. "I think, as a player, you don’t want to be anywhere that you’re not wanted. So if they want to move you and someone wants to take you, then it’s nice to go somewhere like that if that’s the case. And if I don’t hear anything, then I guess I’m here." Wideman is in the final season of his contract and it doesn't seem like he fits into the Flames' plans in the long-term and maybe not even in the short-term anymore. After all, the Flames made him a healthy scratch on Tuesday after acquiring Michael Stone from Arizona. With three goals and 16 points in 52 contests, this is far from one of Wideman's better seasons, but a team might still be interested in him as a rental for the sake of having some extra defensive depth and on the off-chance that a change of scenery will spark him.

Sam Bennett had root canal surgery Wednesday morning.

He also required 10 stitches after he took a stick to the mouth from teammate Deryk Engelland. However, Bennett said he will be ready to play on Thursday night.
